Riverside Park

Oil on 8x8 Gallery wrap canvas

We walked in Neenah, Wisconsin this past weekend and they had this beautiful park overlooking the river with boats and a dock.  It was really beautiful and it made me want to take my painting stuff and set it up right there!  I had to settle for taking pictures and doing it later as we were with family and we opted for ice cream instead.

Tree Lined

Oil on 8x10 Gallery wrap canvas

The row of trees on either side of the road were beautiful with their cast shadows on the road. This is from one of my pictures of the Chateau des Alpilles in St. Remy last summer.

Annecy on the Water

Oil on 12x16 Gallery wrap canvas

My parents are from this town in France called Annecy.  It's in the Alps about 1 hour from Geneva and is a great place in the winter for skiing and also in the summer because of hiking and swimming in the large lake.  The downtown is very quaint as it has canals that run through the town and little bridges all over.  Very beautiful town, I would highly recommend a visit if you have the opportunity.  This picture was taken by my sister, Audrey, during one of her visits.

This is a sunset we had on our vacation at the beach in Topsail Island, NC.  The house was on the sound side and we saw some beautiful sunsets!

Below is a picture of my new studio easel!  I've been wanting one for years and finally got it, needless to say, it's been a pleasure painting.

My sister-in-law took this picture of poppies, she actually took a few pictures of them and I felt so inspired to paint them, I just love these flowers. I may use this to do a larger painting.

I painted this landscape a couple months ago and since I haven't been home to paint lately, decided to post it again! I love doing reflections in the water, it gives such a peaceful feeling.

Sketches from the Beach

Sketches on paper with watercolor pencils 

 I did some sketching during our vacation at the beach. I really liked working with the watercolor pencils, color just brings life to a sketch! We're still on vacation but I can't wait to get home and start painting again!

Hope everyone is having a great 4th of July!
